Shorewall and Limit: how to reset a Limit counter
…i have still no ide how to reset the counter in /proc/net/ipt_recent/
but found a way to circumvent the blocking of an address for some time:
- sudo iptables -L | grep -e “Chain.*%Limit\([0-9]\+\)\? "
- this lists all the Limit Chains
- sudo iptables -I %Limit -m recent –name SSHA –remove -s IPADDRESS
- in case the Chain is calld %Limit and the name for the recent module is SSHA
